My first Dead show.
I saw 2 JGB shows in '91. This was my first Dead show. It was the day after my friend and I graduated high school and we there for both shows. The crowd had great vibes. Listening back Screamin' Jerry on SMR gave me goosebumps. Very fond memories of sitting back and watching the spinners on our way back from the bathrooms.

I sang a little while and then flew on.

Don't Ease Me In
A quick shout out for 'Don't Ease'. Jerry's vocals are strong and confident which is not a common occurrence in 92. Also, Vince's keyboard is smokin' on this one.

Set 1 is interesting, but just doesn't really stick. Even that SMR everyone's going on about has Jer mumbling the lyrics here and there...not much going on in the back half of the set.
Set 2 definitely perks up - despite a *very* awkward entire missed verse in Crazy Fingers - you can practically *see* the band members looking at one another...
...but give it up for that post-Corrina jam (Mind Left Body, not Prudence) and into quite a lovely Drums > Space > Dark Star - this is about 40 minutes of music altogether from the end of Corrina; I think I even like the last third of the set even more = Stella hangs on and they really do rock Last Time and Sugar Magnolia.
A mixed bag. I'm generally not a fan at *all* of '92 soundboards that sound like this one - too much stifled, choked blankspace going on between songs and instruments - but the boys played some good music this night in Richfield.

Crazy Night Indeed!
This was the best of the 6 shows I saw this tour. After a sea of deadheads at Rich Stadium, it was nice to be sitting mellow in the center of the Richfield Coliseum for 2 nights. There were tickets everywhere, not sure why for an indoor summer venue, so I had to sell my extras at 1/2 price. I was lucky enough to be seeing the shows this summer with some good friends, which made it all the better. The last show here started with a good Stranger, so that was a good sign of things to come. Excellent, solid show! I've often heard mixed opinions on the song So Many Roads ("screamin' Jerry" etc.) but I like it, and this one is a favorite. Phil stepped up to the mic, and it seemed like there was something for everybody at this show. If you were there, you might recall the lighting fx to be exceptional at these indoor summer '92 shows. Just about everything came together for me this night, the China>Rider was the best I ever saw, and I got my 1st Darkstar, 1st 1/2 anyway, only to be followed up a few weeks later at Star Lake. Last time here they teased it out of Space & went into Watchtower, but that's another story! Crazy>Corrina>Drumz, all good, although Jerry lost some of the lyrics during Crazy Fingers. Darkstar was an exciting choice after an otherwise event-less space, it flowed along beautifully & was the perfect time for me to witness it during my time seeing the Dead. Check out an audience copy to hear some of the great crowd response throughout the night too. The Last Time rocked, the show ended strong and this was one to talk about. I'm grateful for this amazing recording.

Those were some GRATE days
Camping near by, tremendous energy in the Lot. What a swell time indeed. Thanks to the Archives to remind us how good the band sounded on this night in June 1992.

First Camping Show
This was my first camping show and I had no idea how much fun I was in store for. Miss all the good times so much. Except for the cold showers the next morning at the campsite. The show was a lot of fun it was my first China/Rider ever. My buddy Kyle was not able to go and he was really into China Cat I remember thinking how jealous he was he missed it. The previous reviewer was right the lows are massive on this recording...too much so. Drop the bass a little and it sounds awesome. Good show I remember the first night being really rocking but the 2nd night seemed kinda low key. The balcony seats sucked at Richfield. You have to get on the floor to really take it in.

So Many Roads
I'm from Cleveland so I'm biased on this one. No one wrote a review for a Charlie Miller board- are we all nuts here?!?!?
The lows are hurting my speakers (-/5) but otherwise, for the year 92' its frickin' beautiful.
An otherwise two star sh0w gets bumped for the So Many Roads. It is the ESSENSE of beauty (and I'm a VERY tough critic- most of my five stars come before 76) but I digress. Two star show- the SMR Bumps it one full notch.
